Eyebrows the Internet


Due to the lack of places offering threading in Leeds I ventured to the original lash & nail bar in Leeds corn exchange. I have to say I did originally ask for my brows to be threaded but the girl who does threading wasn't in that day so the lady I was speaking to said she could wax and tint them...I was dubious, I really wanted to move away from waxing but then she said if I didn't like them she wouldn't charge me as she was that confident I would love the results! SOLD!


So I sat down in the beautician chair and she tinted away - at this point I would normally tell the person that I didn't want to go too dark as it freaks me out a little but she had already said that she wouldn't take them all the way black. She already had my trust so I let her work her magic!

While we were waiting for the tint to take we were talking about threading and waxing and I told her about the debarcle with my last threading experience at Glow. She was gobsmacked and told me that she did go on a threading course but just didn't feel confident in doing it and that's why she didn't offer it. She's been waxing for over 10 years and knows she's good at it - so why change? Very good point indeed.

With all tinting and waxing done she filled in part of my brows (part of my right brow just seems to not have any hair) with a MAC pencil. She also showed me how to do it at home too as I've never been very confident in pencilling in brows! I also stopped by the MAC counter en route home to pick up a new eyebrow pencil too *oops*

I'm super happy with the shape and the result, she really did know what she was doing and put my mind at ease. Would definitely go back and recommend it all Leeds ladies to pay a visit!




So here's the result. P.S I'm in a pumpkin at Alton Towers :)

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…
